    I wrote a letter to the good folks at Indicator inquiring why EARTH VS. FLYING SAUCERS alone was not included among their three Columbia Harryhausen boxes, and received another prompt reply from John, along with a bit of info about a much-requested title I've been bugging them about for a year:

    Hi Rick

    Many thanks for your order this has been posted for you today.

    We did try to license Earth vs Flying saucers, but Sony Pictures did say it wasn’t available unfortunately, which was a great shame.

    Night of the Demon announcement will be this Thursday at 10am


    Kind regards


    John

    Wonderful film, will be interesting to compare with the excellent French release.

    Yes, the French set included an extensive perfect-bound book (with French text, but loaded with photos) and the transfer looks great. I can't imagine Indicator will include a book (although perhaps a shorter one) but will almost certainly contain supplements not available in on the French edition. I am hoping for an historian commentary track, as everyone directly involved with the film is pretty much gone.

    It's being presented at 1.66:1 btw; maybe Bob Furmanek can shed some light?

    Holy crap! This thing is chock full of extras. Commentary, docs, 80-page book. 4 versions of the film. Wow! I wonder if one of these versions will include less of the Demon. Inj particular, I’m thinking of the end where the Demon has the villain in his claw. It looks so bad, would like to see that gone.

    I ordered it. I don’t like that they charge right away, but I ordered it. With shipping it added up to $42, which is much, much more than I am usually willing to pay. This is a favorite movie, the boatload of extras, and the reputation of Powerhouse pushed me over the edge.

    Kine Weekly gives the aspect ratio of 1.85:1 filmed at ABPC Elstree.

    What are the other two versions? I don't see any point to having Curse of the Demon because it's just less than Night. Do the other two versions have more footage, or are they just different cut downs?

    It's not simply a case of one being shorter than the other; alternative shots are used in some instances.

    I only care if there is totally new footage. I'll stick with the one I've got.
